Could it be? Some good news on hiring statistics for a change?
The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) released their latest NACE Index report this month - and it shows some signs of improvement in the college hiring market. Or at least an "improvement in the level of decrease." Hey - we have to take the good news from where we can!
Each month, NACE polls its employer members and reports the results as an index for college hiring and an index for recruiting activity. Index scores range from 0 to 200 (100 represents no change; scores below 100 represent an expected decrease; scores above 100 represent an expected increase).
NACE’s latest poll, reported as an index, shows that the index for college hiring stands at 98.2—up from 87.2 in the November poll.
While the college Class of 2010 is facing a tough job market, there has been improvement in the hiring index for three consecutive months indicating that college hiring may have stopped receding and is slowly starting to rebuild.

NACE’s next poll will be conducted January 4 - February 1; results will be reported in the NACE Spotlight Online.
